Andrew Baldwin is associated with the University of Aberystwyth, where he teaches printmaking. He is a frequent traveler to the United States and Canada, where he is invited to give lectures and workshops, about his art and his revolutionary process.
Based in a small village in the Welsh hills, Andrew Baldwin has devised a new ‘green’ product that has replaced asphultum one of the last toxic materials used in Intaglio printmaking.
He has also devised many new ways to create mark-making that ranges
from randomness to precision, using his invention. Artists have long hoped for a less toxic form of printmaking; this revolutionary alternative has provided that, while maintaining the integrity of the intaglio process. Results equal those of the historic traditional ground.
Andrew’s personal work swings from whimsical to dramatic. He uses a “play on words” while he magically creates his work in the velvety blacks of intaglio aquatint while using his new creation; the latest series about war reflects on a darker period in time.
